I just finished attending the session (#6 in the list above) on IoT: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow, by Professor Pister, it was great! It seems like his team is converging on designing a single-chip mote!
Kris, the slides were not yet posted as of Wed night. I may have a version of Prof. Pister's earlier presentations (prior to Dust Networks sale) that I will look for and send you. The talk focused mostly on OpenWSN / stack.
Hey, sorry I did not see your list before the show. I did not realize that I had made the list at number 5. It seemed very well attended and I had a lot of positive feedback afterwards. I will be making my slides available to those that want them. I am going to make some small updates to them. I plan to have them available by next weekend if anyone is interested.
